This page shows different videos related to the development and execution of the proprioception and lower limb rehabilitation exercises performed in this research project.
Generation and validation of a lower limb proprioception test
This video shows the generation and validation of a lower limb proprioception test. First, the robot and the vision system is calibrated. Then it is shown how the desired exercise can be generated. For this purpose, the medical staff indicates the desired position and orientation for the end of the robot’s mobile platform. This can be achieved in a very simple and intuitive way thanks to the developed position and force control. Finally, the patient executes the exercise so that he/she must position (with eyes closed) the leg in the same location as indicated by the physician.
Clinical evaluation of lower limb proprioception
This video shows an exercise of the clinical evaluation of lower limb proprioception using a parallel robot.
Clinical evaluation of ankle propioception: plantar/dosiflexion and eversion/inversion
This video shows an exercise of the clinical evaluation of ankle proprioception. The video has two movements: a plantar/dorsiflexion and an eversion/inversion.
